Landscape with water

Tomorrow it's back to fruit!

Seriously, I feel like I'm wrestling with a pot of spaghetti noodles. Making a mess, fumbling around, thinking that I got a handle on it only to have a tangle of noodles in my hair and hanging off my sleeves!!

I hope that Thomas Kitts is having a great time in Laguna Beach, but I can hardly wait for him to get back to tell me to twirl or cut.

Tomorrow I will paint fruit again. Sigh.

You are being way too hard on yourself...there is more right here than wrong for sure. The rocks in particular have great temperature/shapes..the water probably needs to have more color? Well, I think it looks better than you must think it does. haha...spaghetti.

You're right. My high standards have been influenced by your friendship.

Celeste is right. This is better than you think. Throw it against the wall; it'll stick.

Hi Kvan,
I agree with Celeste and Sam, you need to be kinder to yourself. Changing mediums is very challenging. Realize there is a learning/adjustment curve and cut yourself some slack. Believe me I know.
The best part is your brain grows and every part of your work(pastel and oil) will benefit. Think of it as if you are learning a new language..have you ever done that? Struggle for a while then occasionally a light will go on. It makes more synapses in the brain connect. Only good comes from that.
And try your spaghetti hot with delicious pesto it's tasty that way;-)
